My iCloud email won't sync

Q: My iCloud email won't sync

I've had this problem where a couple months ago my email stopped refreshing. To sort this I tried to delete the email from my computer and the re login. When I did this it deleted all my past emails and still won't retrieve my new ones. When I try to have a look at the sync settings it won't let me click on it. Anyone know how to fix it?

I've tried the following from Yahoo help and it does not work. BUT, I'm not using the generic Yahoo.com email but rather ATT/Yahoo where everything sits on an ATT email server. It all syncs perfectly with a client like Outlook, or eMClient, but now trying to use the ATT encouraged Yahoo webmail. I'm thinking the instr below are for a vanilla generic yahoo account, not an ATT/Yahoo account.

My goal is to have my iCloud calendar and contacts show up in Yahoo. Can this be done? The iPhone settings function seems to say "yes" as it has yahoo as an option and I have that set up apparently correctly since email is synced and has been from day one (iPhone 4s, so a long time).

Thanks for any guidance.

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

A:iCloud Creating Duplicate Bookmarks - Due to Win 8.1 Sync?

The only thing I would look at is to only use one cloud service if that is your suspect.

I am not hinting to use icloud but that is simple to stop by just removing the application. If you chose to use icloud this is how to disable onedrive.

I am running outlook 7 windows 7.

In the past, the problem was that the send date above emails in the to send folder said "none" and the email topic was bold faced, and not regular in italics. It will not send.

I resolved this [and SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN IT DOWN] by going to the trust center and I believe disabling the icloud item.

HOWEVER: subsequent to all this, I finally figured out how to sync my outlook calender [not outlook contacts, cloud contacts and iphone5 phone contacts are synced.

HOWEVER, the original problem is back, and windows shows that only calendar in icloud is synced, not "calendar" and not whatever "calendar from icloud in icloud" [just uncheck both and I eliminate dupes]

IF i start screwing around in the trust center and disabling the "icloud outlook ad-in", which I know played a role in getting the send to work, will I eliminate that "calendar in icloud" that continues to works so well? And if so, how do I get it back to sync with iphone 5?

A:How to fix a send issue WITHOUT screwing up my sync to icloud

Like you I am running Outlook 7 under Windows 7, 64 bit, and have version 3, the latest, for the iCloud control panel. And, like you, I have long ceased to attempt any kind of sync for anything other than the calender. If you go into the trust center and disable the icloud add in outlook will cease to sync with icloud. Indeed, only yesterday I ran a test: I added an appointment to my iphone and it did not appear on my outlook calendar. I had disabled the icloud add in before it was the only way to get anything to send from the outbox. As soon as I re enabled it the appointment appeared, only now I had the email issue.

It is interesting to note that when I went into the account settings in outlook to be sure the problem wasn't there, I was able to send the test message without issue, so it have to believe that all my pop server numbers are correct and the problem lies with the add in. Apple support blame Microsoft, who blames Apple. As with this entry, no almost a year old, I have never gotten any answers from this forum.

Should you have learned how to handle the issue, please let me know.

I use Google Drive, Box Sync, Dropbox and iCloud, but I am running out of disk space on my "C" Drive. It looks like my C Drive has 216 GB and I have an E Drive of 931 GB. My C Drive is almost full at 196 GB and made me turn off/unsync many of my Google Drive folders so I could save some of my files for work. My E Drive has almost 900GB available. I think I have my Dropbox syncing to E Drive, but I can't choose how to sync Google Drive to E Drive....It points it automatically to C Drive. My Mac seems way easier than this $***...ugh, what a pain in the *$$...why do I even have two drives seperated like this?!

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I'd really appreciate any input.

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I understand that one person may not have all the answers to all the parts of this; I am on an iphone forum as well, trying to figure ... Read more

I have switched to Windows 10 for mail and calendars as Outlook was taking too long to load. I have set up my gmail account for mail and all is working fine. However I use iCloud for my calendars and want to see my iCloud calendars in Windows 10.

However I am having problems setting up my iCloud account in Windows 10. I enter the relevant details but the "looking for your settings" process never completes. Could this be because I use the same email address for Gmail and my Apple ID?

I suspect I'm making a basic error but would welcome any suggestions. Thank you.

I am extremely new to Windows 8 (like as of today) so I apologize in advance if I sound stupid in this.

I was handed over a work computer today that runs Windows 8, the previous employee set everything up using her personal email information (IE: the email from the main email envelope is her email, and the calendar feature would add details to her personal calendar not the one for work). She is not set up as a user on the computer at all, but her personal details are linked into the system.

I have searched the help documents everywhere and have gone through settings for the two applications trying to work out how to remove her personal information from the system and replace it with the work information. She doesn't need to see the new schedules or the times that our employees will be out on different jobs. My 3 hours of looking online this evening has brought me here for your help.

Is there a way for me to go in and remove her personal information and replace it with the information for the company? I could sit and question her ethic as an employee for hours as to why she would do it this way, but honestly if her ethic was great, I wouldn't be taking this over at this point. I just need to ensure that the computer is set up for the business not for someone's personal email and calendar and ensure she isn't getting notifications of our future work schedules.

A:Changing email/sync information for Email and Calendar

Just my2cents (no pun intended) but I wouldn't touch anyone's personal information on a computer that was handed over to me by an authorized representative of a company for the sole purpose of conducting business. IMHO, that computer should have been reinitialized by your IT department and all previous personal information should have bee removed. If I were you, I would take it right back to the person that gave it to you and tell them it contains personal information from a previous employee and let them deal with it.

My desktop runs on Vista Home Premium. My laptop runs on Windows 8. All I want to do (this seems so simple) is to be able to see and use my email on both computers. My email address is @embarqmail.com, so I thought if I could use Embarq (now CenturyLink), for my email, I could bypass the issues with non-compatible versions. Not working. I can see the incoming mail on the laptop, but when I select it, it disappears. Shows up on the desktop. Maybe it is simple and I just don't get it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:email sync

I'm not familiar with that email site. But many of the old reliable pop3 mail programs can do web mail. For example Thunderbird. Instead of "syncing" per se, I would just set Thunderbird on one PC to leave messages on the server for like a week. The "subordinate" computer I would set to 2 days. So I'd end up with 2 copies with no formal syncing. It's fine if you are not charged by the byte. Plus it acts the same from XP to W8. The old new thing.

In the case of web mail if you wish to leave copies on the server "forever" then set Thunderbird to never delete the mail on the server.

You may need to find out if the web mail supports pop3 access and what server name string to use.

A:Sync my email on many devices

Yes, you can use IMAP or ActiveSync/Exchange and all devices will have the same emails. You seem to be using a POP account which has no syncing capability and will need to switch the account over to POP or ActiveSync/Exchange if the email provider supports it or switch email providers.

My grandfather has a Comcast email account but wants to just click his windows live shortcut to access it.
I added a new account to the windows live so he could access his Comcast email.
Currently he has to click the sync button in windows live to pull the emails from Comcast over to windows live.
Is that as good as it gets or is there a setting somewhere that will make the emails received at Comcast show up in windows live without hitting the sync button.
I am assuming he does not have a windows live account because while having it open he is not signed in and all emails sent from windows live show up as being from Comcast.net when they arrive so I don't think forwarding will work.
I hope that makes sense.

On my old computer I had Eudora Internet software (freeware) to synch the email to my palm. I tried downloading it to my new computer, but nothing happens when I sync. Everything else works (calendar, contacts, etc), but the email needs a third party to sync and the Eudora is doing nothing. It's downloaded on my laptop (XP), but I can't figure out how to get it into the install conduit or to get it to run.

Is there a simple fix to get it going, or does anyone have a suggestion for a better freeware software to do this?

I don't want to buy anything because I'm probably going to switch from my plam/phone combo to a smartphone soon, and I'm guessing the software will be different.

So, I would like to switch to using Mozilla Thunderbird for desktop email and its Lightning Calendar instead, but I don't see a way to get my iCloud calendar to work easily with Lightning.

I have a laptop with outlook 2007 on it and a samsung S4 mini.

I have 2 email addresses, one outlook.com, one hotmail.com

I have a problem where emails on my hotmail.com address seem to just delete off the phone, normally after I have viewed then in outlook 2007.

With outlook open, if I send an email from hotmail to outlook, it appears on my phone, any emails that are sent to hotmail show up in outlook but not on my phone.

1 )What can i do to fix this?

In my account settings

outlook = MAPI
hotmail = POP/SMTP

if that helps

2) is there any way I can delete a message in outlook 2007 and have it delete on my phone, or vice versa

I currently have an android phone and use gsyncit to sync my tasks and calendar with Google calendar and tasks. I then have gmail pulling emails and leaving them on my web site host's email server via POP3. This works fairly well but is the email part is kind of clumsy and I can spend lots of time sorting emails in gmail that are already all sorted on my PC's outlook.

My dream is to have a mini-outlook on a Windows 8 phone and Windows 8 tablet that stays in sync with my Outlook on my PC (and vise versa) via the skydrive cloud service - no more messing with re-filtering email, deleting garbage emails I already deleted on my PC. Things on my new W8 phone and tablet would mirror my PC right down to the filtering rules and folders.

The hub of most of my work is currently Outlook 2007. My thinking is the new Windows 8 phone and tablet with Outlook 2013 and Windows 8 PC would give me super productivity no matter where I am at and what device I am using.

I have been doing a lot of reading on Office 15/Windows 8 and understand it syncs documents across devices but I can't find much about simple, automatic email sync.

So I guess my question is, will there be a common Win8 Outlook app that will allow my to keep in sync across Win8 devices or will I still be stuck in my sync hodgepodge world of Outlook syncing on outlook.com instead of gmail?

A:Windows 8 PC - Tablet - Phone email sync

Hopefully MS will shed some light on Outlook integration during the Windows 8 Phone event on Wednesday. I can't seem to find anything online about this. If there is no cross device Outlook integration with auto syncing, the only plus to a windows 8 phone would be Zune Pass integration. I love Zune pass.

A:buddy has win 8 cant sync email other than microsoft live

Hello monk,

Please be more specific. I am sorry, but what is an online account other than Hotmail? Hotmail is an online email account that Microsoft uses (along with outlook.com, live.com, etc) for many of their products.

You can use it to log into a computer that has been set up to use it. And you cannot use other email providers for this service. However, if you are speaking about outlook or something else, that is a different matter. I just need some clarity. Let me know!

Well the proper way to transfer Outlook info from one computer to the other is to export the PST from the old account, copy it to the new computer and then import it into a matching or new Outlook account. It sounds like it was not done this way and unless you explain in details exactly how it was done I am not sure we can help you. You should also describe which operating systems and versions of Outlook are involved.

I would like to sync my Firefox, Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail between my desktop and my notebook computer. (And my Vueminder calendar.) What is the best way to do this?

I was think of switching Firefox and Thunderbird to the portable versions and storing them in a folder that syncs online. I'm not sure how it will work with Windows Live Mail. I know how to change where the mail "store" is located, but not sure if changing that will automatically copy everything to the new location. I imagine I will have to copy the current folder to the location that will be synced and then set the mail "store" to this location. Probably something similar with my calendar program.

Can anyone tell me if there are any pitfalls to doing this that I am unaware of?

Also, any recommendations for free online storage/syncing that will work well for this? What should I look for? Reliability and security concerns?

I currently use Dropbox, but I do not have enough free space to use it for my email, browser and calendar data.

I am considering iDrive which offers 10 GB free. I am also considering FileLocker, but that only gives me 5 GB free even though they advertise 25 GB free. (The 25 gb free is for five different users on the same account.) I had been thinking of using SugarSync, but it looks like their free account is now only for 30 days.

I would love to sync emails in my desktop (Windows 7, choice of windows live mail or thunderbird) and laptop (windows vista, choice of windows mail, currently in use and therefore preferable, or thunderbird).

Would it be possible to do it by using a file sharing/sync service like Dropbox? My ideia is to chage the file storage location for my email files in both computers to a folder inside my dropbox.

Will it work? Do Windows Mail (Vista) and Windows Live Mail (7) use the same type of file?


A:sync email in 2 PCs sharing storage files (dropbox)

I use Thunderbird on 2 different machines. What I do is set it to delete the mail on my mail server after 2 days. Then I set it to only download new messages. If I want a copy of the email on both machines I get the mail from the secondary machine before the stuff on the server is deleted. If it's junk mail, I use an email notification app to delete it on the server. Less chance of picking up a nasty if you delete all the crap on the mail server.

Your setup is a bit different. I haven't used DropBox so I can't speak to it in particular.

I have a live.co.uk email address and I added an outlook.com alias, making the latter my primary alias. I noticed that in the Windows 8 Mail app when I selected my Outlook.com account the Inbox showed "Couldn't sync messages". I uninstalled Mail and reinstalled it. The reverse situation is now the case: when I select my Live account the Inbox shows the same message. I think this has only been happening since I updated from 8 to 8.1, but I could be wrong about that. Since I still receive the emails, I suppose it doesn't matter much but I wonder if this should be happening.

Just looking for some advice. Somehow, I've never figured out how to do the email dance between home and office computers. I have always used Outlook on the office desktop computer with POP3, and accessed it remotely from the home laptop, but there has to be a better way now with so much syncing going on. At 62 I'm still trying to get my head in the cloud(s).

I have recently installed MS Office 365 on both computers (Windows 7). The primary email addresses that I use are all from our ministry website URL ([email protected]). I also have Outlook.com accounts I can use, and I like that browser. I also have a couple of Gmail accounts I occasionally use, but I don't like the Gmail browser. I have an iPhone 5 for mobile, but don't really use the mail client yet, and I will probably purchase an iPad at some point. I'm a bit confused about POP3 vs. IMAP vs. Webmail.

I want to be able to coordinate all my email so I can view it on any device, and yet have all my email downloaded to my desktop office computer for fast and easy archive and retrieval purposes. I'm used to using Outlook on my desktop for all email, but I would consider using Outlook.com if that made the most sense, but probably not Gmail.com.

This is probably a whole lot easier than it seems to me right now, but I would appreciate any advice on the best way to do this. Thanks.

A:Advice Needed for Setup and Sync of Home & Office Email

imap is designed to allow to sync on multiple devices

where as POP will just download onto one device


heres an article explaining web mail, pop and imap

gmail supports both imap and pop

so set all to imap and then all devices will be able to read all the emails

I dont know what your main email provider is , as i do not know what you mean by
The primary email addresses that I use are all from our ministry website Click to expand...

and so cannot advise if they support imap

Hello there,

I'm coming to the end of my tether with Windows Live Mail.

I've had this laptop for just over a year and up until about 4 months ago the mail facility provided by Windows 7 was working perfectly. I previously had my 2 Hotmail accounts synced up and receiving and sending emails no problem.

That is until it died - it stopped receiving mail and started giving me error messages, in despair I began to search online for solutions however I either didn't find anything relating to my Vaio model or the things I did find which could possibly have helped, didn't. I tried deleting the accounts and re-syncing them too - error. (I can't remember these error messages or their codes)

I lost all hope as had other problems with slow start up, slow running time, slow mouse etc. and returned to checking my emails through my browser. Recently I got myself in gear and cleaned the system, defragment etc, and the laptop is back to its almost new state, so I thought I'd give Windows Live Mail another shot.

Same problem I think, will not sync the accounts what so ever, even though the nice little message is telling me:
"Windows Live Mail is synchronising this account.... Read more

A:Windows Live Mail on Vaio won't Sync with Hotmail email accounts??!

That error is a network connection error message, that is commonly associated with Windows update

What security software are you using, that might be blocking WLM connecting.
Do you have an ad blocker as that can cause it, as can a proxy being set or used

A misconfigured firewall can also cause it as can having malware on teh computer

From the other symptoms, I would guess at malware
follow advice here and post the logs those programs make in your next repkly here & I'll see what shows up and we gan go from there

I got a Vundo Virus on my XP desktop (currently using my Vista Laptop) and it took some doing, but MalwareBytes seems to have cleaned it up.
I have notice two seemingly residual problems (at least I never had these problems before)

1. Live Sync doesn't sync the files.
I have been syncing the XP desktop to the Vista laptop and never had an issue, in fact it was one of the MS programs that I thought actually worked really well.
Now, everything says that it's working but nothing is syncing.
I checked the Port Status, Initiate Connection shows OK on all 4 ports, but Accept Connection has Blocked on all 4.
When I stop and restart Live Sync, I can see the Vista laptop goes thru all of the files, but does nothing after.
If I do the same on the XP, it seems to look and find no files to sync.
I have tried uninstalling and re-loading on the XP, no help.

2. My Windows 6.5 phone would not sync with ActiveSync either.
I found a troubleshooting post that said to uncheck in USB->PC "Enable advanced network functionality", so I did and the phone did sync, but before it did a warning came up on the phone saying that this would completely delete all contact, calender and mail data and they would be re-loaded with the sync (which IT did - took forever).

Did this Trojan screw with my syncing ability in a general way?

Hi all, 
can anyone tell me or point me to a source that will give me clarity on the question if the GTX960M in the XPS15 9550 does support NVidia G-Sync via the USB-C/TB3 Port? Of course I would need an adaptor from USB-C to DP if the Screen only supports DP as Input but the question here is about the G-Sync capability of the XPS15/the GTX960M. 
Thanks in adance

A:XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

According to nVidia, the minimum GPU for G-sync is the GTX965m.
The notebook mainboard must also support G-sync  -- something I suspect the 9550 does not.

SugarSync had this capability where you simply checked specific folders you wanted to be synced. Are there any other sync services that provide this function?

So like my Desktop could be checked off as well as my My Picture's folders.. instead of just having one "Sync" folder.

I've got a problem with Windows 7 service pack 1 machines that were installed between 2011 and 2015 using Sync Center.
On these machines, I do not get either
1. Sync Center icon in the taskbar
2. Sync Partnerships shown in Sync Center (accessed through Control Panel).
Sync does run, and the CSC cache contains an offline copy of the files. I simply need access so I can identify and troubleshoot Sync issues as the user.
A new imaged machine since 2016 does not have this problem.
We are running Lenovo machines and am aware of the Rapidboot issue, however that software was only installed on laptops and the problem is with both desktop and laptops.
I believe it may be down to Windows updates applied between 2011 and 2015.
From a machine that is NOT working, I have listed all the WSUS updates below that were install. This list however is approx. 150 updates and I do not want to have to remove each individually to find the problem. It may also not resolve the problem once the
update has been removed if I could even identify the update.
I have read that the following updates could cause problems, however after removing these two it made no difference.
